VERY FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE 1851 13-CENT "HAWAIIAN POSTAGE" MISSIONARY, CANCELLED BY THE RED HONOLULU AND SAN FRANCISCO DATESTAMPS AND IN FAR BETTER CONDITION THAN OFTEN SEEN.
Our census of Hawaii No. 3, published in Part 1 of the Honolulu Advertiser catalogue, is available at our website at http://www.siegelauctions.com/dynamic/census/HI3/HI3.pdf . Nine off-cover 13c "Hawaiian Postage" stamps are recorded with the Honolulu marking (one in the Tapling collection and another only a fragment). This stamp, with small faults but without any paper restoration, is very desirable.
Siegel Census No. 3-II-CAN-112. Ex Hind and Admiral Harris. With 1994 P.F. certificate. The Scott Catalogue notes that "values are for examples with minor damage that has been skillfully repaired."
